Today’s question: Who is Satan?


Today’s question:
Who is Satan?

Answer: He’s a fallen angel, who attempted to usurp God’s throne; the leader of a multitude of other angels, who “fell” along with him.

He’s the Tree of Knowledge, in the Garden of Eden, who manifested as the talking Serpent.

Satan is the failed, persecutor and torturer of God’s faithful servant, Job.

He’s the false, wannabe, “Morning Star” (Lucifer) described in the Book of Isaiah.

In the Gospel, he’s the Tempter of Jesus, whose willing minions include the pagan Romans, as well as the corrupt Temple officials, who crucified our Holy Lord, Jesus Christ.

He’s the “Dragon”, in the Book of Revelation, who gives his power to Antichrist, in order to deceive the whole world.

Satan gained dominion over the entire earth and perpetually enslaved all of humanity under the curse of sin and death, by convincing (actually, seducing) Adam into betraying God and joining Satan’s rebellion, against God. Satan is the Father of Lies and a Murderer, from the beginning.

Satan’s evil dominion of death and hell was destroyed by the crucified and risen Jesus.

Satan has but a short time remaining, on the earth. He is known to be, at the present time, “prowling about the world, seeking the ruin of souls”.

When we cast our cares upon the Lord, He leads us to safety. It is called Divine Providence. When the atheist can prove that he makes the rain fall, the snow fall, the seed germinate and the crops grow, than he can be taken at face value, otherwise the atheist is a usurper.
